Thinking About the Past Year

Just thinking about the past year can leave me a bit drained. Although there are many exhilarating moments nurturing a new business from conception to it's first anniversary, the price includes losing all semblance of personal balance. It's difficult to not feel a swell of guilt when I hear my voice reminding all of you how important it is to take time for yourselves and to live fully in the present; knowing that I couldn't keep the lounge alive if I took my own advice. As we charge full speed into our second year, I assure you the experience has been priceless. Every new student that joins us to learn and practice yoga has something unique to offer our community. Each of the smiling faces that arrive to class know that with mat in place; peace and tranquility are only one breath away. We currently have four dedicated yogis who are spending their free time learning more about yoga and taking careful steps down the path to becoming yoga students AND teachers. In 2009 we hope to offer additional class times and workshops, making it even easier for you to keep a consistent practice within your busy schedule and for me to transition from literally "living and breathing" yoga to living in balance through yoga! Thank you to all who have contributed in any way to the creation and continued success of balance yoga lounge. -Sandy
